Scary week

This week has been rather a strange week because I didn't go to work with mum at all. She says that her and dad were on something they called a holiday. So I missed all my doggy friends. And Poppy really hasn't been very well (she has a stuffed puppy she calls Loofah - long story!) so I have been without pup friends. I really don't feel as confident when I don't have my pup friends around me.
I went to school again this week with mum and I found it all a bit scary really. I don't know why because the people and the dogs were all really lovely, but I found it very overwhelming and I didn't understand what mum was asking me to do. So me and mum went and sat on the bench and just watched the others, while she fed me and we did some hand touch. I'm glad she doesn't make me do anything I don't want to, I'm going to try extra hard when we practice to be good at the things I can do so mum will be proud of me.
I had a couple of bad moments earlier in the week. I have been a good pup and learnt a tiny bit of recall so I was allowed off lead in the park. But I saw some cyclists and had mad flashbacks to the past, and I herded them. I don't know why but I wanted them to behave like sheep. So I chased them, then I circled them before I barked and tried to push them through a gate. Mum and dad laughed the first time, but the second time they were less impressed. Now I will be on lead until I have learnt better recall as well as a leave it command.
I escaped earlier today which made mum cross. I needed the toilet so when Mum opened the front door to take Poppy out for a walk I ran out and started running to the park. Mum was very cross and shouted at me. She said it was lucky that a woman caught me a little way up the road otherwise I could have been hurt or got lost. I don't think so, I was only going to go to the toilet and come back.
Me looking a little bit worried about the house move
There are scary boxes everywhere in the house, and this really is worrying me. In between nursing her Loofah pup Poppy explained that lots of boxes mean that we are moving house. I am a little bit worried about this. I have only just come to live in this house. I'm not sure I want to leave just yet, I have found comfy spots to sleep in here. And will they actually take me with them? Pop assures me they will but I can't help worrying. I have found that boxes are tasty to eat and fun to play with though so that is one good point.
Mum says we're going back to work tomorrow and Poppy is coming with us as she is quiet now so she won't cause problems. I had better go and get my beauty sleep so I look my best before I see all my doggy friends again.
